Course Statistical analysis for new phenotyping techniques
Monday 25 - Wednesday 27 June 2018
This course will teach how to get the most out of new types of phenotypic data and integrate these data into genetic analyses. The course will deal with pre-processing of new phenotypic data (image pre-processing, spatial and longitudinal modelling) and show the integration of new phenotypic traits into QTL and genomic prediction models.
BioSB course: Algorithms for Biological Networks (5th edition)
Monday 25 - Friday 29 June 2018
In this course, a brief overview of molecular biology, the advent of high-throughput measurement techniques and large databases containing biological knowledge, and the importance of networks to model all this will be given. A number of peculiar features of biological networks will be highlighted.
Summer School Unstable geographies of play, ownership and empowerment; An Action Research Event
28 - 30 June + 3 July 2018
The Summer School is connected to an event that turns around the concept of traditional academic conferences, in the sense that participants will spend most of their time doing fieldwork and generating new insights, rather than solely reporting on their ongoing research.
Summer School on agroecology and animal production
Monday 2 - Friday 6 July 2018
The Summer School Agroecology and animal production is especially designed for PhD students in the field of agriculture, and professionals in agriculture and the feed and food industry, such as consultants, technical advisors, policy makers and researchers.
Course Introduction to Ecometabolomics for Ecologist
Monday 27 August - Tursday 31 August 2018
The course will provide an overview about the application of metabolomics in ecological and biodiversity research. We will explore the tools and approaches that are used to obtain, process and analyse metabolomics data.
Towards a Global One Health: an interdisciplinary lens to explore synergies, trade-offs and pathways for food systems transitions
Monday 27 - Friday 31 August 2018
The health of people, animals, plants and their environments are closely connected. This short course on Global One Health (GOH) aims to foster interdisciplinary thinking on the cutting edge of agricultural production, the food supply chain and nutritional and public health outcomes (human, plant and animal) in the framework of a food systems approach. Using an academically rooted food systems approach, synergies and trade-offs between scientific disciplines, such as social, environmental, microbiological, animal, plant, epidemiological disciplines, will be explored. Also the role of public and private stakeholders in the food system (farm to fork) will be discussed.
Course Matrix Approaches to Health Demography
Monday 5 - Friday 16 November 2018
In this course, matrix methods will be used to analyze models based on prevalence and incidence data. The methods will go beyond the fixation on mean results and will incorporate variance and stochasticity. The class will introduce methods based on Markov chains, Markov chains with rewards, multistate matrix models, and matrix calculus. The new analyses will be compared, where possible, to traditional approaches.
